Hello! My name is Ashli Ognelodh and I am the owner of Oggy’s P-Arty mobile art party company! We take the party out of the studio and bring it to any place of your personal convenience. I started the company in 2014.
I had been previously working for other studios. The first studio I worked for, I worked very hard and quickly became the head of operations as far as maintaining the artistic business aspect of the studio. In January of 2013, God kept telling me that I would be moving on soon. I was hurt because I loved my job and I loved what I was doing. I continued to work there and finally in June of 2013 the Lord told me my time had come to leave. I put in my notice to leave and without notice by July of the same year the company went under. Well in the same year another company saw the things that I was doing with the previous studio and hired me to orchestrate their entire program. I started their studio from the ground up; utilization of my contacts, pictures, etc…then one day there was a party scheduled and I wasn’t aware of it. They had replaced me with someone cheaper without telling me and told me that if I was willing to come down on my pricing they would keep me. I was hurt and infuriated. Needless to say now that company is no longer in business.
After that incident God placed it on me to start my own business. I remember stating that I didn’t have a building and He replied you will do this as a mobile service and it will work! The company is still growing, but I am so thrilled with the experience and the people I have met and the joy that I have been able to experience everyday. I not only get to do something I love, but I get to encourage people creatively and bring joy to them as well. I literally provide a service of peace and happiness to others.
To me being a peace or joy in a chaotic world is gift that I am grateful the Lord uses me to be a vessel in.
